Photoville, the unorthodox New York photography festival where images are presented in shipping containers, began in 2011 with a simple premise: to bring high-quality photography to the broadest audience possible.
For hundreds of years, on the eighth month of the lunar calendar, people have gathered along the shores of China’s Qiantang River at the head of Hangzhou Bay to witness the waves of its famous bore tide. Higher-than-normal high tides push into the harbor, funneling into the river, causing a broad wave that can reach up to 30 feet high.
